I know that Quickbooks hasn't verified the Quickbooks 2020 will work with Big Sur. And, older versions of QB don't seem to run at all. However, I've seen posts from some QB2020 users that they are able to open and use QB2020 after installing Big Sur.
Quickbooks has indicated that there may still be issues with QB2020 and that some features may not work as expected. Has anyone documented what features seem to be buggy? Is there any indication that the data is corrupted after a switch to Big Sur?
Thanks for joining us here today, @Dave_68.
I have some information about QuickBooks for Mac 2020. As indicated in the system requirements. Big Sur isn't compatible with QuickBooks for Mac 2020. It means the software is not yet tested in this operating system. As a result, some features may not run correctly and seem buggy.
As a workaround, you can go back to the old operating system while Big Sur is on its Beta version. Learn more about the system requirements for QBDT for Mac 2020 at this link: System requirements for QuickBooks Desktop 2020 and Enterprise Solutions 20.0.

Perhaps I should have been clearer -- I have not yet upgraded to Big Sur given the current compatibility issue. I was asking the community if anyone with QB2020 who has upgraded to Big Sur might share their experience -- what seems to be working, what isn't and whether or not there is any sign of data corruption.
Thanks for joining this conversation, @Sblackburn.
May I know what specific version of QuickBooks Desktop (QBDT) for Mac you're using? I appreciate it if you can provide any additional information in the comment below.
Also, if you already upgraded your OS version to Big Sur as well, this may be one of the possible reasons why you're unable to use the Calendar option. Since Big Sure is still on its Beta version, some of QBDT's features may yet function properly.
I'll go ahead and take note of this concern. You may our Blog site in the meantime. This is where we share recent happenings and future developments, such as updates to newly added features.

I haven't yet installed QB2020 on my desktop but have been using BigSur for awhile. Other than the calendar feature not working, what other anomalies can I expect? Thanks in advance!
Thanks for posting here, @ChickeyJ,
Since BigSur isn't fully supported for QuickBooks Mac Desktop 2020, we can’t promise your experience will be trouble-free. Programs installed in an unsupported operating system, hardware, software, firewall or antivirus will most likely cause compatibility issues. Though we can't pinpoint what features in the software will not work, you can check out with the users in this thread for more information.
Please know that our engineers are working hard toward this goal, but we can't provide the turnaround time since they work on this internally.

This post will remain open for updates and questions. I'll be right here if you need anything else.
